Product Description

Woven medium pine needle oval basket from Nicaragua, measuring approximately 12" diameter x 9" wide x 3" tall. At the tops of the mountains in northern Nicaragua, resources are scarce. A walk to the nearest town takes 5 hours. What is plentiful, though, are the needles shed by the numerous pine trees. The ladies of Fuente de Pino gather these needles by hand and take them back to their homes. They then shape the needles into coils using a special nylon to bind them together, with a touch of colored cotton thread as an accent. The work is very detailed, with just one basket taking up to 13 hours to produce. The texture and color make these a true conversation piece for any coffee table.
